LEGS ON THE COVER

No one rocks a fashion spread like the tennis superstar who delights in her passion in designing as much as she does in her sport. Serena proves she can blend both interests effortlessly which made her the perfect cover girl for the sports publication’s Fashionable 50 issue.

The publication’s annual Fashionable 50 issue celebrates stylish athletes and no one epitomizes that like Serena.

Stripped down to a white swimsuit, a white robe to partly cover up and neon heels, Serena’s pic boasted of toned legs on full display. She raised one on top of a pillar exhibiting the result of years of sports training that led her to her many successes as a tennis pro.

“I always try to make a statement when I walk out on the court—to be bold and to be unique and to kind of transcend."

THE EPITOME OF A STYLISH SPORTSWOMAN

But Serena’s foray into the publication’s front page wasn’t all about her gorgeous legs or the sport that developed them. It was also about her sense of style which reigns supreme both in and out of the tennis court. In fact, the publication’s annual Fashionable 50 issue celebrates stylish athletes and no one epitomizes that like Serena.

ON MAKING BOLD CHOICES

“My whole career has been really about tennis and fashion,” the 37-year-old shares in her cover story. She adds that her style has always been about delivering a message of empowerment.

“I always try to make a statement when I walk out on the court—to be bold and to be unique and to kind of transcend. I always try to send the message of just being confident and being fierce.”

CONFIDENCE ABOUNDS

This confidence is what drove Serena to break barriers when she showed up in last year’s French Open in a black catsuit. It was also the same confidence that enabled her to transcend the controversy that erupted when the French Tennis Federation banned the outfit in succeeding games.

GOING BLONDE

This weekend, the mother of two-year-old Olympia showed up at the launch event for her Sports Illustrated cover sporting blonde hair. She completely nailed the new do that complemented her skin-tight tank top and pencil cut skirt. There is no question that the tennis icon is a style star in her own right and we salute her for all the bold choices she dares to make.
